Recently, a number of well-known universities have successively announced the results of expert evaluations on double-class construction. Tsinghua News Network stated that experts commented how "Tsinghua University is a world-class university in an all-around way," and many other universities have also released similar results. In response, Xu Mei, a spokesperson for the Ministry of Education, responded: "We should clearly realize that there is still a big gap between the overall strength of our country's higher education and the world's top universities."
Decoupling with China has been the flagship word of the day in Washington under the presidency of Donald Trump. The unilateral tariffs on Chinese goods imposed in 2018 and 2019 were only the initial maneuver in this direction. Since the outbreak of the coronavirus pandemic, we have seen an intensification both in words and deeds in the U.S. for ultimate decoupling with China.

As China begins to deliberate its next five-year plan, the rest of the world still finds itself in the throes of the COVID virus, indeed, perhaps entering into a new and more serious phase. This is partly due to the chronology of the virus. China was the first country affected by the coronavirus. And it acted quickly and with great vigor, and was therefore the first country to battle its way out of the danger zone. Other countries were affected somewhat later and they reacted slowly and less rigorously in spite of the example shown by China.
Looking at the various words and deeds of this administration of the United States, many people have begun to suspect that a few politicians in the United States seem to behave abnormally, with uncertainties that ordinary people cannot predict. It may be more appropriate for us to diagnose important members of the US government as”political autism.” Two years ago, we just thought they were “suspected”, but after two years of observation and analysis by the international community, it can be confirmed that these American political elites are indeed suffering”Political Autism”.
Among fellows of all think tanks, I admire British historian Arnold Joseph Toynbee (1889-1975) the most. He is best known for his 12-volume A Study of History, which contains more than 3 million words and about 7,000 pages. These tomes trace the development and decay of 19 world civilizations in the historical record, most of which can be described as the most profound illustrations of human civilization.
On 25 July, an online international meeting entitled "No to the New Cold War", organized by scholars and activists from more than 48 countries, was streamed live on several platforms. In view of the new cold war provoked by the United States, scholars at the meeting unanimously said that any form of new cold war is completely contrary to the interests of mankind, called on the United States to abandon its cold war mentality, supported the establishment of relations between China and the United States based on mutual dialogue, and committed to the unity of mankind. John Ross, a senior fellow at Chongyang Institute for Financial Studies, Renmin University of China(RDCY), participated the meeting and delivered a speech.
